Previews... Previews... You know as much as I that a lot of bullshit being presented in previews never make it to the actual game, right?

Depends on the company. Irrational Games doesn't spread bullshit. Besides, the features that have been promised to be in BioShock have already been seen in vids so they're definitely in the game (if not they just took them out which would've been weird but whatever)

A good quote from the review:
Quote
BioShock isn't simply the sign of gaming realising its true cinematic potential, but one where a game straddles so many entertainment art forms so expertly that it's the best demonstration yet how flexible this medium can be. It's no longer just another shooter wrapped up in a pretty game engine, but a story that exists and unfolds inside the most convincing and elaborate and artistic game world ever conceived. It just so happens to require you to move the narrative along with your own carefully and personally defined actions. Active entertainment versus passive: I know which I prefer.

It got a 10/10 :)

Seems that I have to upgrade my rig before buying this game.

Minimum processor speed should be 2,4 Ghz and 2 Gb RAM.

I only got a 2,0 Ghz processor and 1 GB RAM.  :/

The developers does not release spoilers. Matter of fact, they made it clear that the screenshots doesn't reveal to much of the game. -_-

He didn't say developers. Due to some confusion or whatever at the retailers, there were people who got their copy of BioShock early.

I think 3DR will be pretty safe from spoilers.. Unless there's going to be a noob/b-tard/sa-goon invasion ;)

I just got a call from my local EB Games which told me they wouldn't get in any regular BioShock Xbox360 editions on friday (I pre-ordered it, you see) so they're just gonna go ahead and give me the Special Edition for the same price, yay!

I got my copy last night and started playing.

Needless to say it's probably the best shooter I've played in quite a while :)

This has caused some irritation:
With the release of Bioshock, the current retail and Direct2Drive clients only allow for two installs. After the two install key limit is reached, you have to manually activate the product again via telephone support. This is due to a new version of the content protection system known as SecuROM. 2K has yet to release an official statement concerning the matter. The Steam version of the game does have a more lenient policy -- One may "install", or rather, copy the content files onto two computers concurrently -- clearing Bioshock local content off one of these computers frees up a license slot.

2k responded to that:
Quote
hey guys,

first, let me say this. you DO NOT NEED TO USE THE INTERNET EVERY TIME YOU PLAY THIS GAME. it is only the first time.

second, you can uninstall and reinstall this game, and if, by chance, you have 2 computers you want to simultaneously play this game on, you also can do that.

if by some chance you are reinstalling this game without uninstalling it first, a lot, there is a chance you may have to call securom and get a key, or deactivate some older installations.

but if you upgrade your hardware next week, you'll still be able to play the game. if you revamp your system and need to reinstall bioshock, just uninstall it before you go through the overhaul, and then do your reinstall.

calling it "hardware fingerprinting" is a bit alarmist. we do not transmit any of your data to any companies.

really, the only people who will be concerned about any of these security measures are those who are rapidly putting bioshock on many pcs... if you use the game as you normally do, you won't notice this at all

I think that comment was about another issue (the "hardware fingerprinting" issue), not sure though.

No it's addressing the same thing.

a-okay!

edit:

some word from Ken Levine himself:

Quote
I've followed up on the circular email with securom and we are working on this issue. I agree, it sucks, and we need to get that sorted.

I've been told by 2k that we will.

-Ken
(source)

Hopefully they'll abolish that "only 2 installs" thing..
